MarineMax said its Panama City Beach store in Florida will host a fishing seminar on how to catch wahoo, dolphin and tuna from 9-11 a.m. on Saturday.
Each year, offshore fishing begins to pick up in June and lasts through September. The seminar is designed to provide tips and techniques that build angler confidence and disseminate methodologies.
Tom Putnam of the Half-Hitch Tackle Store, who has been the instructor for the fishing seminar instructor for the last 14 years, will lead it. He will detail the proper approaches, using rods, reels, tackle and bait. He also will coach on bait presentation and landing techniques for these unpredictable fighters.
Printed materials will be handed out for future reference; professional vocalist Bob Fowler will provide entertainment during the halftime break.
“If you are a novice or simply trying to improve your game, this seminar will be informative and entertaining,” MarineMax Panama City Beach sales consultant and broker Bob Fowler said in a statement. “Even if you are a seasoned offshore fishermen you may glean new skills and learn some successful tips if you attend.”
